Ibis Mall Of The Emirates
Ranked #467 of 563 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Don't be fooled by a fancy lobby. How this hotel can justify calling itself a BUDGET hotel, I will never know. For one night, I paid around 150 GBP, which did not include breakfast. The hotel doesn't have a gym or swimming pool, but you can use the one next door....If you pay for it. Internet is chargeable in rooms, while most hotels in the vicinity at least give you wired internet for free (CityMax Barsha 5 mins away). It is close to the Mall of the Emirates, but many hotels are. The room is small and sterile, and the TV is not as big as at other hotels that are cheaper than this one. All in all, this hotel would be fine if it was a more reasonable rate. Value for money is basically non-existent.

Room Tip: Try CityMax Al Barsha

I was a little disappointed on arrival as I had booked a twin room online, but the hotel was overbooked and I ended up having to take a double and share a bed with my 5 year old son for the duration. However the staff (particularly the restaurant staff) were very friendly and went out of their way to look after my son at breakfast times. The room was kept clean and when we asked for a change of linen it was done promptly. The location is a five minute walk from the rear entrance to the Mall, where there is a supermarket, so it is easy enough to stock up on drinks/snacks for the room. The traffic around the hotel is crazy and most cars dont stop or slow down when you are trying to use the cross walk. There is an Italian restaurant in the hotel, also Nandos and Subway and laundry facilities within walking distance. The Metro can be accessed via the Mall if you aren't planning on driving, and is probably the most efficient way to travel there. There is free internet in the lobby and the rooms have tv and internet at a cost. I think this hotel is fine for a short stay, but if you are planning a fortnight or longer - you might want to look for a bigger room and a hotel that has a swimming pool.

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor.

I regret to read that we were not able to accomodate your request of Twin Bed.
I am pleased to inform you that very soon, we will provide free internet connection in the room, in order to accomodate the on going growing demand of connectivity.

In case you plan a new trip to Dubai for leisure with your family members, I would kindly recommand you the Suite Novotel Mall of Emirates, adjacent to Ibis, having more spacious rooms and a swimming pool.

Looking forward to welcome you again in Dubai.

Regards,

This hotel is located near Mall of emirates you can get there by walk.You have to be careful when crossing the street. There are no traffic lights and cars drive too fast.The hotel has very nice interior, completely clean.The room service and housekeeping do their job efficiently.We stayed 4 nights.There are no leisure facilites shuch as swimming pool.There are vending machines for juice and water also ice making machine.
Wifi is free in common area.Breakfast was nice but sometimes coffee maker had problem and that caused long queue.Safe boxes were in the reception.
Finally, this hotel is very comfortable specially for business and has higher standards than a two star hotel.

Spent 2 nights in Ibis Dubai during a stopover. its a fantastically located hotel, right off Mall of the Emirates, which basically makes it a great business-trip hotel, both for work and for shopping. The rooms are good, internet is fast and the breakfast is special. By Dubai standards, it rates pretty high up there!

I travel to Dubai almost every month and first time I stayed at this hotel. When I checked in, the reception staff were unfriendly and I felt unwelcomed.
The towels are old and dirty. Don't expect hand towels. My last towel had holes and I had to give it to the reception in person so that they don't wash it and give it to other guests.
In general, the service is terrible and I do not recommend this hotel. I will never go back.

Me and my wife stayed at the hotel last December 2012 for 2 nights. The location is very good (although it's not exactly European walking distance from the nearest Metro station (Mall of the Emirates), if I remember correctly it was something like 15min to get there, but I guess that's normal for Dubai, after all the distances are enormous there:) The neighborhood is good, offers small grocery stores nearby.
The lobby is interesting (design-wise) which for a budget hotel (which the Ibis is) is unusual.
The staff is extremely helpful and polite. We went there very early in the morning (around 8am) because of our flight, the check-in is around 2pm, but there was a room checking out around 10am, so the staff offered us this option without extra cost, which was very generous of them. They offer a free baggage storage so you can explore the city while you're waiting for the check-in.
The rooms are clean and convenient (very identical to any other Ibis hotel in the world), have a security box in the wardrobe as well.
There was no breakfast included in the offer we have chosen and the additional price per person for a breakfast meal seamed a little steep (but again that's typical for Ibis).
In general - we were very happy with our stay there and we would go back when in Dubai.
